What does hardwood cost include

So why does solid hardwood flooring cost so much? For starters, it is just that –solid wood. Many other flooring types seek to mimic the look of solid wood because there’s simply nothing else like it. The classic beauty is as timeless as it is worth it.

You can choose domestic or exotic species in a wide variety of grain patterns, colors, widths and thicknesses. Some species will be better suited for your own home, depending on a variety of different factors including high or low traffic and the type of stain and finish you choose.

Aside from the material, it’s also a little more expensive and time-consuming to have hardwood installed. This is because great care is needed to get the job done right. Special tools will be used in both cutting and installation and a gap will have to be left around the edges to allow for expansion and contraction. The experience it takes to get everything involved just right the first time is well worth it because a mistake can cost a lot more than a detailed installation.

The staining process can be time-consuming as well, especially since you can’t walk on the floor right away. The process can be lengthened still if you choose to have the floor finished on site. However, you can consider hardwood floors an investment in your future!
